Cannoli Bruschetta


                  For me....It's always the simple things that give me pleasure. Less is more?
         How could you go wrong with this recipe. A Cannoli without all the fuss. It can't get
                  any better. I hope you will agree. Once you bite into the crispy, sugary bread-
           topped with a creamy ricotta filling, pistachios and dark chocolate your taste buds
                                  will be singing for you. Serve as a appetizer or dessert!

                                                              Cannoli Bruschetta

                Thinly slice a baguette, arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Brush
           with softened butter and sprinkle with salt and sugar. Bake at 425 degrees until
           lightly golden, about 7 minutes. Let cool slightly.

           Beat 1/2 cup of ricotta, 1/3 cup confectioners sugar and a dash of vanilla extract.
           Beat with a hand mixer. Spread on toast rounds. Top with chopped pistachios and
           shaved chocolate. Dust with confectioners sugar.
